Buu was walking to the school bus when she saw a boy huddled against a tree of one of her neighbor's yards. She stopped, and so did the jingling of the bell that was hanging from around the neck of a miniature plush pig, which was subsequently hanging by a key ring around her backpack. She thought to call out to him and ask what he was doing on Old Man Jynx's front yard, necause Old Man Jynx was not a very friendly old man and she had never heard of the old man talking about any relatives, but something caught her attention. The boy's back was facing hers, but she could make out that he was hunched over something on the ground, something flat and yellow, and whatever it was, the boy was studying it very intently. She walked over to the boy, hoping that Old Man Jynx wasn't going to appear any time soon, and the bell hanging from her backpack commenced it's jingling. She could hear a soft crunch add to the sound of the bell as her foot stepped over each crisp October leaf, but clearly the boy hadn't, because he still didn't turn around, even with all the noise she was making. She couldn't blame him, actually. For some reason she hadn't seen a single car this morning, not a single person, and not a single light had been turned on despite the fact that the gray skies above looked like it was threatening to flood the city any second now. Her mom had told her to go early that morning so she wouldn't cross paths with the rain, and could stay under the shelter of the bus stop. Her mom also packed her two blueberry muffins and an egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast. Buu had protested that her lunchbox was already heavy enough, but her mom had insisted. Buu finally got close enough to peer over the boy's shoulders. She saw some sort of map. A map that looked like a treasure map, but it was hard to make anything specific out with how tiny the texts were and how poor the lighting was. "Whatcha got there?" She asked, hoping she wouldn't startle the boy into running away.
